Located in the Town of Smithville, the 3,254 acre Long Pond State Forest (Chenango Reforestation Area #35) offers a wide variety of habitats and recreational opportunities. Over a thousand acres were purchased in the 1930's, using funds from the Hewitt Amendment. Old farm fields were reforested to white pine and spruce. Native species of American beech, black cherry, white ash, sugar and red maple and eastern hemlock can be found. An additional 2200 acres was purchased in 1963 from the Tarbell estate.
